I know this sounds like a dull topic. However, I work with both engineers/operators and monitor on-line discussion groups to give feedback on their wastewater treatment problems or questions. One of the greatest challenges is communication! I can't tell you how often I hear:
Can I treat XXX?
What polymer should I use?
My biomasss is floating but nothing changed in the influent?
In ease case, the operator wants me to give a concise answer that definitely does not contain "it depends".

Remember, consultants are only as good as the information that they are given. Failure to communicate key information can result in poor results.
